Wind Energy – Investment
Spanish company Windar Renovables has confirmed its investment decision to build a new offshore tower factory in Poland.
Windar Renovables will begin construction of this factory in 2022.
This new facility will be approximately 120,000 m2 and will include covered areas for welding, surface treatment and assembly works, as well as an open area for the storage of finished components.
Total investment is worth 80 million euros and will create 450 direct jobs once the factory is fully operational.
The plant, which will have the capacity to manufacture 100 towers annually, has been designed specifically to accommodate the manufacturing of the new generation of offshore wind turbines (14-16 MW), and will enable serial production of sections of up to 450 tonnes, 10 metres in diameter and 50 metres in length.
Production is expected to start in early 2024.
